ISPT welcomes new talent to reshaped Executive Leadership Team

ISPT is proud to welcome a trio of industry leading new talent to its recently reshaped Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and celebrate the elevation of Steven Peters to the newly formed role of Chief Sustainability Officer.

The newest ELT members include:

  • Matthew Brown, Group Executive, Head of Funds Management, who will focus on driving product innovation and fund performance
  • William Walker, Chief Investment and Development Officer, who will unlock value within the existing portfolio and fuel a proactive approach to new opportunities
  • Amanda Steele, who joins as Group Executive, Head of Property, to drive a step change in consolidated property services delivery
  • Steven Peters, Chief Sustainability Officer – reinforcing the importance of ESG for ISPT, our investors and customers

Working with CEO Chris Chapple and the broader ELT, Matthew, William, Amanda and Steven will seek to accelerate ISPT’s transformation agenda and next wave of growth.

The foundations of transformation have already been laid. Following his appointment as CEO last October, Chris has driven a prioritisation of capability building, evolving how ISPT does business, and simplifying the organisation’s structure to unlock efficiencies.

Alongside this, the business has been focused on efficient and effective portfolio management, underpinned by diverse products, and investment across geographies and asset types that are defensive and can produce a combination of both alpha and beta returns.

Chris says, “ISPT has a stellar 29-year track record in the industry, and we are committed to embracing this legacy, while evolving and elevating ourselves for the future. Our ambition is to become a globally recognised leader in funds management, ESG and DE&I, the go-to property partner for customers and a true employer of choice, supported by a high performing team who are empowered to do their best work and build better, more sustainable futures for our investors, customers and communities.

“The reshaping of our ELT, including the most recent appointments of Steven, Amanda, William and Matthew, will certainly help drive our ambition, as we sharpen our approach and positioning in market.”

ISPT Chair Rosemary Hartnett says “We believe the world class talent, collaborative spirit and vision we now have in place across the business will drive ISPT’s reputation as one of the sector’s most progressive players in the market – an organisation with a commitment to ESG excellence embedded at the core, and an unwavering focus on innovation to drive the returns investors are looking for.”
